    Americans: Have you ever considered ex-patriation?

    After reading The_Patriot's post about his dad's comments following Waco, and knowing my own feelings on the subject, have any of you considered relocating. If so, where would you move and why.

    No I never have. But my wife considers going to Canada from time to time, like when Bush won the second time or when Branstad was elected again here in Iowa.

    Sometimes, I get - not scared, but really concerned that things could just go ass-over-teakettle here, and I'd rather not be around when it happens.

    Sounds like my wife. I figure that can happen anywhere. I prefer the devil I know.

    Surely not anywhere?

    When I thought I was going to be rich (don't ask) I seriously considered Panama. I don't know how I feel about Canada, except that it's not so very far away from me.

    And of course I don't want to go anywhere where they think of us as "Ugly Americans."

    I don't even know if I would move to a different state. Having lived all over the country (North California, Florida, Oklahoma, Michigan, Indiana)..I don't think anything feels as much like "home" as Texas. I would consider moving north in the summer, though. Maybe to the U.P. of Michigan...but I'm home and I love it here. Hell or high water.

    I'm the same with Minnesota. Always and forever. BUT: Do you ever worry about our country staying as wonderful as we perceive it to be?

    I only saw Panama from the jungle for a day (enough for me). Not sure I'd want to go there. But yeah, given time and circumstance, almost any palce can go to hell.

    Re: Americans: Have you ever considered ex-patriation?

    I had considered moving to Canada. In Canada pharmacists have a much wider range of practice and I've always personally liked Canada. I've also considered moving to Japan. Of course I would greatly miss my family, but I could leave America.

    I feel like we're already heading to hell in a hand basket and it is scary. But I'm not convinced we'll be a 3rd world country any time in my lifetime.
